Silego Technology has announced the fifth generation of GreenPAK (GPAK) programmable mixed-signal ICs.
This latest generation device, including Silego's new Asynchronous State Machine and I2C blocks, introduces more flexibility, functionality, and ease of design to the NVM programmable GPAK family of devices, the vendor said. With the addition of the Asynchronous State Machine, designers can implement up to eight unique states with zero code, zero static power, and fail-safe operation. The addition of I2C enables designers to change device configuration, such as analog comparator thresholds, on-the-fly. The I2C block can also act as a digital IO expander.
Included in the SLG46531V are improved Counter/Delay blocks, featuring one-shot and frequency detect modes, as well as the capability to drive an external crystal oscillator.
These new functionalities, along with the configurable digital and analog blocks seen in previous generations of GPAK, are all packed into a tiny 2.0 x 3.0mm 20-pin STQFN with 18-GPIO.
